Don't Get Lippy With Me

A mouthy stand of trees that I have shared here before, demanding another look with their combined lip power.

Oh, I love this one... reminds me of Charlie Brown’s teacher: “Blah Blah Bla, Bla Blah Blah Bla!!”

@Denny Jump: Yeah !

Gérard from Allauch, France

These are not the lips of Salvador Dali's famous sofa, but it's an original and curious find

@Gérard: Just this one weird stand of trees in the Elora gorge. We visit them from time to time to make sure they aren't gossiping too much.

Hiro from Kyoto, Japan

How many times did you kiss them ?

@Hiro: Ha ha… tempted, but I respected their wishes to be left alone !

Anna Cherer from LA ROCHELLE, France

Amazing ! The lipstick is missing ;-) I know that trees communicate between them, but I did not know that they had mouths! Did they talk with you ?

@Anna Cherer: They waved goodbye to us when we left that section of the forest, but I have a funny feeling the wind played a role in that.

What an amazing presence the trees have !

@Ronnie 2¢: Indeed, they make quite an impression when you walk up to them in the forest.

grouser from Ludlow, United Kingdom

If they all talk at once the noise must be tremendous :) Excellent capture of these oddly sculptural trees

24 Nov 2018 11:19am

@grouser: If they all got to jabbering, it would sound like a Robert Altman movie.

Marjolein from Enkhuizen, Netherlands

Hahaha, what a great nice trees.

@Marjolein: Thank you.

Ruthiebear from Titusville, NJ, United States

HAHA! As soon as it opened, even before reading your words, I thought lips. Love this one. Makes me smile.

@Ruthiebear: As an avid tree admirer, I could only be thrilled at the discovery of these lippy beings. Thanks, Ruthie.

Shaun from Massachusetts, United States

What a great capture. Have you any idea just what they are saying. They might be telling you they don't like publicity. 5*

@Shaun: Thanks, Shaun... I sure hope I didn't intrude upon the wishes of these trees.

Dreams come true from Utrecht, Netherlands

Trees whisper to the sound of the wind, with so many mouths it must be enchanting.
A great and special photo.

@Dreams come true: Very kind words; thank you very much.

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Wow, they must be a talkative bunch! ;-)

24 Nov 2018 11:49pm

@Steve Rice: When in a surly mood, they've been known to bark at each other.

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Toronto, NYC, Canada

They almost need a red marker for the final touch, wowser !~

@Phil Morris: They may have tried to bite me if I attempted to apply the lipstick finale :)
